Why It’s Useful
Acne spot treatments are useful when we need a little extra help. Yet the traditional ones are a bit too strong for sensitive skin + often cause overdrying, sometimes to the point of peeling. In my experience, this continues the acne cycle instead of fixing the one spot. Finding gentler ones has been the fix I found; it just takes some searching. Acne patches can be one help.
I’ve used Missha’s Speedy Solution in the past with success, so hoped Peach Slices Acne Spot Dots might be the same.
For my skin, unfortunately, I haven’t been able to use them with good enough results; had to switch to anti-scar treatment at least once; and suggest caution, if you try.
Sensitive Skin Acne Review
On me, the pimple tends to almost liquify instead of becoming a typical whitehead. The skin on top can become fragile + sometimes ripped off when the patch was removed, which sent my routine into anti-scar mode.
The package warnings hide some useful instructions: 1. You need to rinse the patch to help remove it 2. Don’t place it on damaged or broken skin.
Gave it extra chances after learning that, to be sure it wasn’t my user error. But I still am not able to use this well. The glue used, in my opinion, could be dialed down a bit in strength. And, I’m going to guess, that for some reason it’s just a patch that’s not suited for my skin or is too strong.
The ingredients only note it being a hydrocolloid patch, no other ingredients that I can find. So it’s a bit of a mystery to me why this might not have worked for my sensitive skin. Truly hoped Peach Slices Acne Spot Dots would be a good fit. That’s sensitive skin for you, though.
For spot treatments that have passed the skin test + I do use without trouble, you can find them here.
